Found this stalled build while looking through the stash.  Rear bumper mounts were broken off, so fab'd some new ones and readied it for the shelf.  It's a 1/32 Pyro Packard Boattail Roadster from the 60's.
It's been some time since I painted it and forgot what color the lower is, but the wife says it looks like magenta.  The color scheme was intended to be something suitable for Bette Davis or Joan Crawford.

















Thanks for looking,
Mike

Looks like it came right out of the Great Gatsby.

Nice one Mike and I'd say your wife is spot on..... definitely magenta.

Davis and Crawford indeed..... anyone for the Charleston??

For a 1/32 and a Pyro to boot, you did a great job.  My only quibble is colors, but it's a matter of taste. Excellent wire wheels for 1/32 also.  I think Monogram did a 1/24 of that one too and it IS well detailed.  Thanx for sharing a rare classic!
